"Brilliant, magical and totally enjoyable...will be a highlight of this summer for sure!"Audience member, Romeo & Juliet
The Importance of Being Earnest
Oscar Wilde’s ‘trivial comedy for serious people’ is a masterpiece of sharp wit and preposterous plotting. Such ‘beautiful nonsense’ cries out for the sort of surreal treatment that has become Miracle’s hallmark.
Set in the year 1912, with the Titanic sinking, mass production just beginning on the Morris Oxford and the Turkey Trot causing outrage across the dance floors of polite society, this tale of the strange contents of a handbag found at Victoria station has been subtly adapted to extract every drip of humour and contemporary relevance.
In this high energy production Miracle adds an extra dimension to ‘the funniest play ever written’
Yet another perfectly executed masterpiece!
‘After a damp summer spent entertaining audiences in the great outdoors, we are delighted to be bringing our production of ‘the funniest play ever written’ The Importance of Being Earnest to the Hall for Cornwall,’ says director Bill Scott. ‘These are the sort of comfortable and civilized surroundings to which Oscar Wilde’s ‘trivial comedy for serious people’ is best suited and we would like to invite all members of polite society to join us for a couple of hours of unbridled merriment.’
